Scale & rotade handles??

Hello, I´m using the trial and going through some tutorials. In the snowman tutorial ( ) whenever the tutor clicks on an object, some scale and rotate handles show around it, which he then is able to adjust the model in an easy manner. However, I´ve looked everywhere in the program, and on this site, and I just can´t seem to be able to turn that function on.

Anyone feel like enlightning me?

Thanks :)
